    I went to an interview this week and they seemed to be pleased and now i've been offered a second interview. I didn't know about this when i applied so i would never have done it.
    It involves giving a 20min presentation to a bunch of the businessmen and i really don't think i can do it. I have really bad social anxiety and it took everything in me to give a 8 minute presentation at university. It drove me insane with worry thinking about it and before it began i nearly walked out.
    It would be a great opportunity if i did it and i understand 'what's the worst that could happen' and my thoughts are making it worse. I get all of that but it doesn't matter, i still panic and don't think i can do this.

    The feedback i got from my interview was that i doubted myself a lot and seemed nervous. They said me being anxious could cost me the job because i'm in anxious then they'll feel anxious. So i felt **** hearing that.

    I don't know what to do. I know that i should go and at least try, but i physically don't feel able to do it.

    Does anyone have any tips or advice?
